    Oase pump and skimmer failure

    Hi anyone else on here had any problems with either oase aqua max eco premium pump 1200
    And the small oase swim skim 25?

    I had my pump replaced as it just completely stopped working after 2 years the replacement I have received has lasted 18months and now lost half its power I usually take it all apart and clean it 2/3 times a year canít understand why there only lasting this long ?

    My swim skim just packed up this morning I think thats just over 2 years old the impeller is running but too slow to draw any water in I have had both apart and cleaned again but no joy with either! Any recommendations for replacements ?

    Iím hoping oase might honor the 5year warranty of the original pump as it theory itís 4years and 5 months since initial purchase but we will see

    Oase are normally very good in my experience mate.

    Unusual issues here (again in my experience).

    Cheers

    Spoke to the oase rep at the show today he said worth taking apart again and just making sure washer on impeller shaft moves round and isnít stuck with a bit of limescale also said to blast some water through the top of the impeller whereís thereís a tiny hole which if it blocks can cause the pump to run at lower wattage, thatís a job for Tuesday.
    He also confirmed they would honor warranty if that didnít solve it anyway.
    Not really bothered about the skimmer think I need to get something a little bigger anyway
